Cup of Emptiness – Jake Allen Sharp

This bed is not my own

Why do I feel alone

The world moves by

But I am like a stone

From the cup in my hand

I drink to understand

Why I have become

Such a desolate man

I said it would work out but I lied

My hopes and dreams have died

It may never get any better than this

Drink from my cup of emptiness

Maybe I was too bold

Never did as I was told

I fought against the grain

And am bitter and old

I said it would work out but I lied

My hopes and dreams have died

It may never get any better than this

Drink from my cup of emptiness

So, what happens now?

Someway or somehow

You stay by my side

Fufilling your vow

Have I let you down?

In sorrows we drown

Torn and tarnished

Like your wedding gown

I said it would work out but I lied

My hopes and dreams have died

It may never get any better than this

Drink from my cup of emptiness
